Register for Easter Egg Hunt at Festival of Sails

Posted: 1pm 25 Mar 2021

Registrations are open for The Sesame Lane Great Easter Egg Hunt, which is part of this year’s Redcliffe Festival of Sails at Suttons Beach on Good Friday.

The first 500 children registered will be guaranteed a spot.

They will then need to collect their map between 9am and 1pm on the day from the information tent, which will be at the end of market alley near Suttons Beach Pavilion under the Visit Moreton Bay Region marquee.

Maps will be reissued if they are not collected by 1pm.

Once they have their map, children can hop their way through the festival site, visiting festival friends along the way and collecting stamps and eggs to go in the draw to win a prize.

When their map is completed, they need to return it by 4pm to go in the draw to win.

Be part of the action

Redcliffe Festival of Sails is on from 9am-4pm at the Suttons Beach foreshore.

The Easter Bunny will arrive by boat at 10am.

The event team is working closely with Queensland Health to deliver the festival and, with patron safety top priority this year, Redcliffe Festival of Sails will be delivered under a COVID-Safe event plan.

There will be a few changes, in the spirit of safety, and all patrons will be required to scan in using a QR code for contract tracing purposes.

The program will still feature three stages of live music and entertainment, more than 100 market stalls, a visit from the Easter Bunny, Pop-up Ice Cream Fair, sand sculpting workshops, an Easter Egg Hunt and, best of all, a perfect view of the Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race.

Family fun on the foreshore

Moreton Bay Region Industry & Tourism (MBRIT) Chairman Shane Newcombe said families missed out on the Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht race last year and were looking forward to the iconic race this year.

“We encourage everyone to join us at Suttons Beach in Redcliffe and view the amazing vessels as they sail past the peninsula,” Mr Newcombe said.

“And make sure the kids get involved in the Easter Egg Hunt, which is free and engaging fun for all.”

Mayor Peter Flannery says every family in South East Queensland should set their compasses to Suttons Beach for an Easter egg-stravaganza.

“Gone are the socially-distanced indoor egg hunts of 2020 – we’re bringing the Easter spirit back with a bang for Redcliffe Festival of Sails,” he says.

“I can’t think of a better way to kick off your long weekend than a day at the beach, so make sure you mark your calendar, plan your trip and bring the whole family to join in the fun.”

Visitors are encouraged to take advantage of the free event park-and-ride service with shuttle buses operating between 8.30am to 5pm from Redcliffe Showgrounds and Kippa-Ring Station.
